The wedding is now over and the kids are on their honeymoon. I’m sure it will be a while before we get the professional wedding pictures back but I thought I’d share some of the wedding photos of the ceremony that I took on my iPhone and a few that appeared in our feed from guests. Next week I’ll share photos of the reception and the following week I’ll tell some of the wedding stories!
Summer came down the aisle to the theme song from “We Bought a Zoo”
Since the Sand Ceremony was new to many of our guests, it might also be new to you. Here is what was read during this part of the ceremony:
Now we shall celebrate Groom and Bride’s union as it is symbolized through the pouring of two individual containers of sand. One represents Groom (he pours a portion of her sand in vase) and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
The other represents Bride (she pours a portion of her sand on top Groom’s sand) and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be.
As the two vials of sand are poured into the third keepsake vase, (both Groom & Bride together pour their remaining sand in the central vase) the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, as they are now joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual vases, so will the love and bond between the two of you render you inseparable.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
